Lighthouse to install Samsung screen

Picadilly Circus
Lighthouse Technologies has recently confirmed the contract for supplying a new LED screen at Samsung’s prestigious Piccadilly Circus site in London.

The tender was co-ordinated by Lighthouse Northern Europe Sales Manager, Simon Taylor, and the P16i/o 16mm pixel pitch LED screen with 5,000 nit brightness will be installed this summer.

The Samsung screen is positioned next to the Coca Cola Lighthouse screen and will become Samsung’s flagship interactive advertising site. “The P16 LED video screen is ideal for this site, as has already been proven in Piccadilly Circus,” comments Taylor. “Its very high resolution, accurate colour reproduction and down angled LEDs to give a perfect viewing angle from street level, makes it perfect for this type of high profile advertising application. We’re extremely proud to have secured this tender and look forward another successful project.”
